Episode description

“The diversity of saints speaks to how big God is.” Claire Ellendson has a profound love for the saints, and aspires to learn as much as she can about her friends in heaven. One of the things that she’s come to appreciate is the ordinary-ness of some of these holy men and women, and through this appreciation, she’s grown in love of service and meeting people where they’re at, learning more about God’s unconditional love for us. In this episode, Claire shares her background in serving with NET Ministries, what she’s learned from working with folks with different abilities, and what inspired her to befriend the saints.
